About Efi Mavrogianni
Efi has expressed herself through movement in ballet and began tennis lessons at the early age of five. She was a competitive tennis player for 11 years. Efi had been accepted to the University of Iraklion, Crete to study Physics and Mathematics when she was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. She immediately became aware of the integrated nature of the body and began researching natural ways of healing and postural therapies to restore functional movement in her own body.
Efi discovered that Pilates strengthens the whole body and improves posture, while not compromising the safety of the spine. She attended her first Mentor Program in May 2012, where she met Rael Isacowitz, and got inspired by his passion and mastery. She was encouraged to join the BASI Faculty.
She has attended specialization courses for various Injuries and Pathologies, with a special interest in the spine. Also, courses for specific populations, such as Enhancing Athletic Performance, Pre and Post Natal Certification Course, Pilates for the Mature Client, Pilates for Autoimmune Diseases (such as Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus), Chronic Pain Syndrome, Breast Cancer Recovery, Osteopenia/Osteoporosis.
